Kobbo Santarrosa, Creator of “La Comay,” Resigns from WAPA TV

UPDATE, January 9, 2013, 8:35 AM EST: Santarrosa has confirmed that he resigned from WAPA. The network has yet to comment.

After El Nuevo Día reported that actor/producer Kobbo Santarrosa, the man behind the controversial “SuperXclusivo” show and the face behind the “La Comay” puppet persona, walked out of WAPA TV in response to revisions to the show announced by WAPA president Joe Ramos, Primera Hora reported minutes later that Santarrosa submitted his resignation to the network.

In fact, according to Primera Hora, Santarrosa submitted his resignation yesterday, but the network did not accept it. Updates from END said that the network tried to convince Santarrosa with an offer to change his decision, but to no avail. END also said that Santarrosa’s contract had expired on December 31.

The network ran a repeat of Monday evening’s show, and according to a source that spoke to El Nuevo Día, Santarrosa walked out of WAPA around 5 pm local time because “he was not going to do the show based on the conditions that the network imposed on him after the controversy surrounding the death of slain publicist José Enrique Gómez.”

Latino Rebels left a message with our contact at WAPA, seeking comment, but our calls have not been returned.

Its very sad that this program was not suported by the canal  Wapa for which  he dedicated 14 year sucessfully. This program provided comedy, laught, awareness, infact he was like a mother providing advisor to our youngter, to the olders behavior. "He dicho nombre yo". Este artista ha desarrollado un talento atraves de la Comay que ha logrado a la conciencia de los Puerto rriquenos. Creo que pudo mas el dinero para Wapa y quitar el programa que dejar el unico programa que se indentifico con su jente haciendo casos investigativo. Que paso con el nino Lorenzo" Aqui en California el mero hecho que el menor estaba bajo la custodia de la madre positiva a droga es sentencia por negligencia y carcel. Que pasa en PR siguen durmiendo los jueces. Necesitamos La comay.
